All four of us had great food, typical slightly more expensive Minneapolis prices, but still decent value. Our waiter was awesome. He was perfectly attentive and also funny.

Dined here three times and had excellent meals each time. Friendly, unpretentious, efficient service, reasonable prices, casual neighborhood style bar/restaurant. On street parking. Frequented by many locals from nearby downtown apartments. Don't skip this.

Excellent dinner in a nice atmosphere. The crab cakes with spinach and asparagus was outstanding. Peach-blackberry cobbler was also good, but could have been improved with a scoop of vanilla ice cream! Would make eating here again a priority.
